Engagement Strategies for Niche Communities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The secret’s out: good snacks are engaging. At this session, we’ll segment the room into smaller groups to discuss some frameworks and proven tactics for building and engaging niche communities. Bring your own challenges, goals, and ideas to share and you’ll leave with at least two new contacts. Join us for good snacks and even better people.
Our theory is that to make your project a success, the right people have to learn about it at the right time. So how do you identify the specific type of person that is the right fit? And then once you’ve figured out who these super-special folks are, how do you turn them into engaged super-users? And how do you keep the super-users interested?
Join us to share your know-how on how to leverage technology to turn a super-specific target audience into a super-special, super-engaged community. We’ll break the room into teams that will compete (ahem, collaborate) to solve real-life cases and present solutions to eachother.
